Nintendo Switch Pro release date rumors shutdown; No next-generation console launching in 2020
The latest news on the next generation of Nintendo Switch is not as pleasant as the arrival of new games on Nintendo Switch Online. The start of 2020 was immediately filled with rumors that the launch of a new console model is slated to happen within the year.
However, all hopes were crushed when Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa dismissed the speculations and confirmed that they have no plans of releasing a new console anytime soon. It can be recalled that a Nintendo Switch Pro model with an upgraded processing chip and 4K support was speculated to be announced in 2020.
